    Great culture, engaged leadership and plenty of cool projects - ideal place to develop core skills & build your career

    Manager (Current Employee) Toronto, ON

    ProsLots of flexibility in project / team / location - this has allowed me to travel extensively early when I could and wanted to, and stay local now when I have a family
    Investing in / acquiring market-leading capabilities (innovation, analytics, digital) to stay ahead of the market
    Has recently put greater emphasis on merit-based (as opposed to tenure-based) promotions and incentives - a lot more folks are being considered for mid-year milestones, and annual incentives have moved to a variable scale as opposed to fixed numbers based on ratings

    ConsContinues to lag the market in competitive pay, especially in Consulting

    Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to significantly increase focus on top talent retention in a proactive and effective way (as opposed to negotiating once someone has another offer in hand)

    Work hard, play hard with incredibly smart and motivated people

    Consultant (Current Employee) Toronto, ON

    ProsThe team is fantastic and the real reason I stay with the firm. I learn every day from friendly colleagues and get assigned to roles that stretch my skills.

    Cons8 hours is a short day, 10-12 is typical.
    Salaries are competitive with other consulting firms, but overall the pay is much lower than what you can make in industry.

    Advice to Senior ManagementImprove compensation!

    Ripe with opportunity

    Consulting Senior Manager (Current Employee) Montreal, QC

    ProsDeloitte is a great place to work, filled with challenging opportunities, interesting work, and dedicated colleagues. The rotation of clients, projects, and teams makes things exciting and filled with learning.

    ConsIt can be exhausting to maintain this pace over the long term. Opportunities for advancement to partnership/director are dictated by personal performance and market conditions, and sometimes the market conditions are not there. Keep focused on learning and advancement, and know when to pull the plug.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe cautious of your overzealous admiration of direct admit partners/directors. External hires are not often more successful than internal candidates, especially when looked through a long-term lens. By dismissing internal candidates, you run the risk of demotivating potential stars.

    Excellent work environment

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Toronto, ON

    ProsGet to work in teams as well as individually
    Many different departments makes work specified and you are able to work with people in other departments
    Great office
    Fair benefits, Starting vacation is 3 weeks

    ConsSo many employees you don't always get specific recognition

    Education important factor in moving up in company

    Great career choice - Consulting

    Consulting Senior Manager (Current Employee) Toronto, ON

    ProsFast career progression, exposure to a large depth of work, great opportunities to take more ownership
    Deloitte has opportunities for both strategic work and implementation. The combination of the two equips individuals with the right skillsets to succeed in the future.

    ConsWork = Life at Deloitte. However, with the multitude of great people, this can often be overlooked. Compensation is typically not in the form of Money. Deloitte will recognize and reward talented individuals with more work and new responsibilities.

    A good place to start your career, but very political

    Audit Senior (Current Employee)

    ProsPlenty of opportunity to work your way into new positions in different service lines
    Flexible with time off in the summer
    Vast resources which contribute to continuous learning

    ConsWork-life balance is non-existent
    Compensation is poor

    Advice to Senior ManagementChill out. Either increase salaries or add time in lieu for working overtime.

    Solid organization with great leadership and organizational structure

    Senior Manager (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat organizational values, great people, they recruit the best and the brightest. They also have solid career paths and performance structure so you know exactly where you stand. Have worked for other large consulting firms and Deloitte is the best at valuing their people.

    ConsWork-life balance is not the greatest as others have said, but a lot of that has to do with the travel, which also has its benefits. But I don't think this will differ with any consulting role. At least you are well-supported. And make sure you get what you want when you start as compensation and benefits will not change much.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
